A 25-acre park adjacent to USC's Health Sciences Campus, Hazard Park was named for the man who served as L.A.'s mayor from 1889-92. It is located on the site of a former reservoir for farming irrigation ditches and still has a small stream running through it. Planted with old growth pines and oak, it is a popular spot for picnics and sports, and offers after-school and weekend programs for neighborhood youth.
